power supply to the STB DC IN-12V input and plug the power supply mains cord to the
wall outlet (220 V, 50 Hz).
2. Plug a DVB-T antenna cable (for instance, any TV aerial for decimetric waves) into the
STB DVB-T RF IN connector. The DVB-T RF OUT connector allows transmission of
received digital TV signal to other DVB-T receiving and processing devices.
3. Connect the composite video (CVBS) VIDEO OUT jack to the composite input of
television set or other analog video receiver (VTR, multimedia projector, etc.). The fourpins MiniDIN jack allows connection of the STB video output with any S-Video receiver. It
provides better picture quality and requires change of the Output Format parameter in the

The STB Software Update
The software update is performed during the STB loading. The update is possible both from any
USB storage connected to the STB and via the IP network. The minimal update search time is
about 6 seconds and 1 second, respectively. If the previous STB loading was not completed
successfully, the system integrity check is performed during about 20 seconds. If the software
update is available, the loading time increases up to 1-2 minutes (depends on the data amount).
The STB is restarted, if any critical system components are changed during the update process.
2.7.10.1 Update From USB Storage
To perform the STB software update from any USB storage, copy the update file with the
filename extension .EFP to the storage root directory. The directory may contain any number of
update files. When the USB device is connected to the STB and the STB is restarted, the system
automatically determines the last version of suitable file and starts update process. The STB is
restarted, if any critical system components (for instance, core) are changed during the update
process. If the suitable .EFP file is not found on the USB storage, the system tries to find it via
the network. Updates from USB storage have higher priority than network updates.
2.7.10.2 Update via Network
To perform the STB software update via network, connect the PC with started Elecard STB
Firmware Update Server to the STB network segment. If the STB system detects the new
software version sent via the network, the update process is started. Updates from USB storage
have higher priority than network updates. The STB is restarted, if any critical system
components (for instance, core) are changed during the update process.
The update and loading progress information is displayed on the screen.
Attention! The STB incorrect operation may be caused by the update process abend. If the
network cable or the USB storage is disconnected during the update process for some reason,
wait till the STB loading is completed and try to repeat the software update.
